When you think about Montreal's amusement park only one thing comes to mind, La Ronde of course!
Summer just isn't summer without a trip to our beloved local amusement park. But before there was La Ronde there was a another amusement park operating in Montreal from 1923 to 1983, I'm talking about Belmont Park.
Attention party animals: on September 11 from 1 to 3 p.m., Montreal's corgis and their owners will be gathering in a downtown park for a special day of fun and fluffy butts.
Organizer YATAI MTL is launching the pooch party after successfully hosting a Shiba Inu gathering in June as part of Montreal's first-ever Japan Week celebrations.
Among the highlights of the Shiba gathering was the presence of "Kombu the Corgi" an adorable fellow "who tried to infiltrate" the Shiba-only affair and underlined the need for a corgi party, reads the invite.
To keep the event from being too overcrowded – as it's sure to be the social event of the year for Montreal's corgis and their people – guests must pre-register and organizers are only disclosing the venue a few days in advance.
Admission is free and the event will be postponed until September 12 in case of rain.
